Jurgen Klopp is optimistic yet cautious over the progress of star Liverpool centre-back Virgil van Dijk as he continues his rehabilitation after knee surgery.

The Dutchman suffered a serious knee injury in the Merseyside derby on October 17 and hasn’t featured for Liverpool since as he recovers from an operation.

Van Dijk posted a video on social media of him working out with compatriot and former Holland international Clarence Seedorf in Dubai as he continues his recovery from a serious knee injury.

But Klopp insists he is not getting his hopes up.

“Progress? Good, very good but still a long way to go. It is this type of injury,” Klopp said.

“I can be happy when I see these videos because it shows we make good progress but it will still take a lot of time.

“I would like to say something else but these are the facts.”
